Dodged a bullet
I had a contractor I found on Angies List come out to give me a bid on my kitchen remodel this weekend. After I got the bid, I sat down to finish my due diligence on this guy....
Red flag one: Googled him and found a cease and desist order with accompanying fine from the state. No details listed online so I had to wait until I had time during business hours to call.
Red flag two: I looked more thoroughly at his website, when I realized that I recognized one of the kitchens on it. It was Morton5's kitchen! Keep in mind that I am in MN, and Morton5 is not.
Called the state this morning. Apparently he was fined for lying about his license, and fraud. They asked me to forward the bid and the website address to them.
Needless to say....I'm still looking for a contractor!
